Todos los equipos del país debieron preparar el tema Racism in Chile does not exist, tanto a favor como en contra, ya que la posición que defendieron fue sorteada el mismo día de la competencia.

Dentro de este contexto, el día miércoles 8 de Agosto se realizó la Final Zonal Norte en la ciudad de Iquique, que agrupó a las regiones de Arica y Parinacota, Tarapacá, Antofagasta, Atacama y Coquimbo; y la Final Zonal Centro en Viña del Mar, con las regiones de Valparaíso, Metropolitana, Libertador General Bernardo O’Higgins y del Maule.

Por su parte, la Final Zonal Sur se realizó ayer jueves 9 de Agosto, en la ciudad de Temuco, y congregó a las regiones del Bío Bío, Araucanía, Los Ríos, Los Lagos, Aysén y Magallanes.

Los jurados estuvieron compuestos por profesionales del PIAP, así como por docentes de inglés locales y autoridades de las carreras de inglés de las regiones de Tarapacá, Valparaíso y la Araucanía.

Ellos fueron los encargados de seleccionar al equipo ganador de cada una de las zonas, reconocimiento que recayó en el Colegio Salesiano Don Bosco, de Iquique, en la Zona Norte; el Colegio José Agustín Gómez, de Valparaíso, en la Zona Centro; y el Instituto Salesiano Valdivia, de Valdivia, en la Zona Sur.

“Como jurado tuvimos una labor muy difícil, debido al excelente nivel de los equipos que llegaron a la Final Zonal. Fue muy impresionante poder ver a los jóvenes intercambiar ideas y visiones sobre un tema tan complejo como el racismo, con un gran manejo y dominio del idioma inglés”, comentó Ricardo Contreras, Coordinador del área de Certificación Docente del PIAP, y miembro del jurado de la Final Zonal Centro.

“También fue muy interesante ver entre el público asistente a varios estudiantes de pedagogía en inglés de la universidad anfitriona, a quienes esta final les hizo ver en forma evidente el gran nivel de avance que es posible alcanzar con los estudiantes”, culminó.

How to Coach a Debate Team

How to Coach A Debate Team [Kindle Edition]

This book contains all you need to know to successfully coach a debate team. You may need to convince students that debate is a good idea, though. Here are six reasons:
1. Debating ability is a valuable skill.
2. Debate utilizes useful English.
3. It is a unique way to teach grammar.
4. It develops critical thinking skills.
5. It introduces global issues.
6. It develops research skills.

A more powerful reason to coach a debate team is given to us by Dr. Martin Luther King: ““Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace… If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation…” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

The International Baccalaureate [Kindle Edition]

The International Baccalaureate [Paperback]

The global search for high-quality education, embedded in high-performing education systems, has taken on mythical proportions, almost resembling the alchemists’ quest to turn common metals into gold.

It is my hope that the present day search for global education, equitable and providing equality of opportunity for all, shall not cease until the “gold” we seek, has been found.

I therefore dedicate this book to all the educators, researchers, parents and students the world over, who strive to achieve this elusive goal,high-quality education for all the citizens of the world.

In this endeavour, it is my belief that the International Baccalaureate merits a closer look, based on their more than 40 year history of delivering consistently excellent results.

I add that all of the reflections and views in this book are mine alone, unless otherwise noted, and can not be attributed to my employer or any other organization I am affiliated with, past or present. For any errors or oversights, I bear the complete responsibility.
